Marvin Jones (hamstring) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Jones played 70-of-77 snaps in Week 11. The limited practice suggests he's dealing with a low-grade issue.
Nov 25 - 5:09 PM

Marvin Jones secured 4-of-9 targets for 60 yards in the Bengals' Week 11 loss to the Cardinals.

Jones didn’t make his first catch until the final play of the third quarter. He benefitted from Patrick Peterson shadowing A.J. Green, but still didn't have much of an impact. Jones is a WR4 for Week 12.
Nov 23 - 1:08 AM

Marvin Jones caught 4-of-9 targets for 44 yards in the Bengals' Week 10 loss to the Texans on Monday night.

Jones led the Bengals in targets, but didn't make any big plays, as Andy Dalton overshot him on several deep balls and was picked off deep down the middle on one. The other were sideline shots that were thrown well out of bounds, giving Jones no chance. Jones' biggest contribution was drawing a 29-yard DPI penalty on rookie CB Kevin Johnson in the first quarter. Both Jones and A.J. Green have struggled in recent weeks. Jones will be a WR3/4 next week against the Cardinals on the road. He'll likely see the best matchup against outside CB Jerraud Powers.
Nov 17 - 12:30 AM

Marvin Jones delivered five catches for 78 yards on six targets in the Bengals' Week 9 win over the Browns.

With A.J. Green drawing most of the coverage downfield, Jones was able to break free for 44 second-half yards. He nabbed a terrific 25-yard catch in the fourth quarter on a play where he slipped and got back up. Jones is now on pace for 62 catches and 822 yards. Both would be career-highs. He’ll be a low-end flex consideration next week against Houston.
Nov 6 - 12:22 AM

Marvin Jones caught 2-of-5 targets for 12 yards in Cincinnati's Week 8 win over the Steelers.

Jones was lucky to survive this one intact, as Andy Dalton nearly got him killed in the first half. Dalton sailed a pass over Jones' head and S Mike Mitchell proceeded to nearly break him in half on the ensuing tackle. Jones is as boom or bust as anyone in the league, but has an appealing Week 9 matchup in the Browns' collapsing defense.
Nov 1 - 5:40 PM

Marvin Jones caught 9-of-12 targets for 95 yards and one touchdown in the Bengals' Week 6 win over the Bills.

With A.J. Green getting locked up in LCB Ronald Darby's coverage much of the day, Jones led the Bengals in targets and did work against RCB Stephon Gilmore. He beat Gilmore for a monster 42-yard grab down the deep middle of the field a couple plays before scoring a 10-yard touchdown in the third quarter. Jones has a sky-high ceiling, but with so many options in the Cincinnati passing attack, he's going to have boom-or-bust games. Jones will be a WR3 in Week 8 against the Steelers when the 6-0 Bengals come off their Week 7 bye.
Oct 18 - 7:20 PM

Marvin Jones (foot) is listed as probable for Week 6.

He practiced fully Thursday and Friday after being "limited" Wednesday. Jones will get a tough matchup Sunday with impressive Bills rookie LCB Ron Darby.
Oct 16 - 2:25 PM

Marvin Jones (foot) was upgraded to "full" in Thursday's practice.

Jones is ready for Week 6. He'll be on the WR3/4 borderline against the Bills.
Oct 15 - 6:09 PM

Marvin Jones (foot) was limited in Wednesday's practice.

Jones should be fine for Week 6, but has a history of foot injuries. He had five catches for 61 yards in Sunday's win. Jones is a WR4 against Buffalo.
Oct 14 - 4:19 PM

Marvin Jones tallied five catches and 61 yards on eight targets in the Bengals' Week 5 win over the Seahawks.

Most of those yards came on a 44-yard completion on the Bengals’ opening drive. Consistency hasn’t been one of Jones’ strengths, but with Cincinnati’s running game stalled and Andy Dalton playing some of the best football of his career, he’s bound to have a big game once in a while. He'll draw the Bills in Week 6.
Oct 11 - 5:02 PM

Marvin Jones managed one catch for four yards in the Bengals' Week 4 win over the Chiefs.

He was targeted twice. Because Jones is behind A.J. Green and Tyler Eifert in the Bengals' passing-game pecking order, he will struggle for consistent week-to-week production. Mohamed Sanu also chipped in 84 yards on four catches in Week 4. Jones will be a WR4/5 against the Seahawks in Week 5.
Oct 4 - 4:31 PM

Marvin Jones delivered five catches for 94 yards and a touchdown on eight targets in the Bengals' Week 3 win over the Ravens.

Jones delivered a knockout blow with a brilliant 32-yard catch in the fourth quarter. That grab set up the eventual game-winning touchdown a few plays later. After a penalty-plagued first half, this game turned into a shootout after halftime and Jones was one of the main beneficiaries. He’s clearly surpassed Mohamed Sanu for No. 2 on Cincinnati’s receiving depth chart. Jones belongs in the WR3 conversation next week against the Chiefs.
Sep 27 - 5:12 PM

Marvin Jones out-snapped Mohamed Sanu 53-to-27 Week 2 against the Chargers.

Jones earned the start and saw three more targets than Sanu, who was wholly uninvolved in the offense all game. Jones was not efficient with his looks, but he did connect with Andy Dalton for a 45-yard touchdown and appears to have jumped Sanu on the depth chart. With Andy Dalton clicking, Jones is a boom-or-bust WR5 moving forward.
Sep 21 - 10:39 AM

Marvin Jones caught 2-of-5 passes for 48 yards and a touchdown Week 2 against the Chargers.

Jones ran past Brandon Flowers for a 45-yard touchdown in the second quarter, but he was quiet the rest of the day. Jones did start and saw three more targets than Mohamed Sanu, suggesting he may have climbed Sanu on the depth chart. Andy Dalton is clicking right now, and that makes Jones a boom-or-bust WR5 moving forward.
